Notes 600dpi JPEGs. The presentation of this digital version is not pretty: these are just the raw page scans converted to JPEG and concatenated. It seemed to me better to make it available than to fail to make it available because making it beautiful would take too long.

Subject: A Useful Resource
A very useful resource if you're interested in Goudy and his work. I referenced it in a blog post (http://ruk.ca/content/deepdene) when I began using a digital variant of Goudy's Deepdene face.
